(b) Given that AB and CD are two chords of a circle with centre O, intersecting at a point
E. PQ is the diameter through E, such that ∠AEQ = ∠DEQ.
To prove that AB = CD.
Draw perpendiculars OL and OM on chords AB and CD respectively.
Now, m∠LOE = 180° – 90° – m∠LEO ... [Angle sum property of a triangle]
= 90° – m∠LEO
⇒ m∠LOE = 90° – m∠AEQ
⇒ m∠LOE = 90° – m∠DEQ
⇒ m∠LOE = 90° – m∠MEQ
⇒ ∠LOE = ∠MOE
In ΔOLE and ΔOME,
∠LEO = ∠MEO
∠LOE = ∠MOE
EO = EO
ΔOLE ≅ ΔOME
OL = OM
Therefore, cords AB and CD are equidistant from the centre.

10x
log 2 = log 10x – log y2 [Using quotient law]
y
= log 10 + log x – 2 log y

(b) Given : In ABC, AD is the bisector of BAC and BC is produced to E

To Prove: ABC + ACE = 2ADC


Proof:
Let BAD = DAC = x and ABC = y
Now, ACE = ABC + BAC ….[Exterior angle = Sum of interior opposite s]
 ACE = y + 2x
In ABD, ADC = x + y ….[Exterior angle = Sum of interior opposite s]
 ABC + ACE = y + y + 2x = 2(x + y)
 ABC + ACE = 2ADC

(c) Steps of Construction:

1. Draw AB = 4.5 cm.

2. Draw BAS = 120° and draw EA ⊥ AB.

3. From A, cut an arc of measure 3.3 cm on EA such that AX = 3.3 cm.

4. Through X, draw a line QP which is parallel to AB which cuts AS at D.

5. Through B draw an arc taking radius 3.6 cm at C on PQ.

6. Join CB.

Thus, ABCD is the required trapezium.

Q. 4.
(a) We can see that ΔABC is a right-angles triangle.
 AB2 + BC2 = AC2 ....[By Pythagoras theorem]
 152 + BC2 = 252
 BC2 = 400
 BC = 20 cm
Now BC = DB + CD
 20 = DB + 7
 DB = 13 cm
Again ADB is a right angled triangle.
 AB2 + DB2 = AD2 ....[By Pythagoras theorem]
 152 + 132 = 390
 BC = 19.8 cm
In the right-angled CDE
 ED2 + CE2 = CD2 ....[By Pythagoras theorem]
 ED2  CD2  CE2  72  x2

In the right-angled AED


 ED2 + AE2 = AD2 ....[By Pythagoras theorem]
 ED2  AD2  AE2  19.82  25  x 
2

Since in both the cases length of ED is same


and hence ED2 is also same in both the cases.
 72  x 2 = 19.82   25  x 
2

 72  x 2 = 19.82  625  x 2 + 50x


 72  19.82  625 = 50x
 281.96 = 50x
 x = 5.63 cm
So,
ED2 = 72  5.62 = 17.64
 ED = 4.2 cm  DE

 Points are (1, 0), (3, 1) and (5, 2).

 Points are (0, 4), (2, 2) and (4, 0).

Now plotting these points on the graph paper, we get

Since the lines intersect at (3, 1), therefore the solution is x = 3 and y = 1.

In ABC,

mABC = 180 – (70 + 35) [Sum of all s of a  is 180]

(c) Let the side of each of the three equal cubes be 'a' cm.
Surface area of one cube = 6a2 cm2
Therefore, sum of surface areas of the three cubes = 3 × 6a2 = 18a2 cm2
Now,
Length of the new cuboid = 3a cm
Breadth of the new cuboid = a cm
Height of the new cuboid = a cm
Total surface area of the new cuboid = 2[(3a × a) + (a × a) + (a × 3a)]
= 2[3a2 + a2 + 3a2]
= 2[7a2]
= 14a2 cm2
Thus, the required ratio of T.S.A. of the new cuboid to that of the sum of the S.A. of the
3 cubes = 14a2 : 18a2 = 7 : 9.

Q. 10.
(a)
Let us assume, on the contrary that 5 is a rational number.
a
Therefore, we can find two integers a, b (b ≠ 0) such that 5 
b
Where a and b are co-prime integers.
a
5
b

 a  5b
 a2  5b2
Therefore, a2 is divisible by 5 then a is also divisible by 5.
So a = 5k, for some integer k.
Now,a2  (5k)2  5(5k 2 )  5b2
 b2  5k 2
This means that b2 is divisible by 5 and hence, b is divisible by 5.
This implies that a and b have 5 as a common factor.
And this is a contradiction to the fact that a and b are co-prime.
So our assumption that 5 is rational is wrong.

Hence, 5 cannot be a rational number. Therefore, 5 is irrational.
